Kyle Zimmer optioned to Double-A

Consistently injured Kansas City Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer has been optioned to double-A.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmer, who had tremendous hype coming up, has been constantly injured and it has really taken a hit in his pro career. Zimmer pitched a total of 5.2 innings in 2016 and than had thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. Zimmer has some value in dynasty leagues but should only be drafted as a flyer in the later rounds. If Zimmer stays healthy, he could give back tremendous value.

Kyle Zimmer should be good to go for Spring Training

Kyle Zimmer, the former #3 pick for the Royals, missed the 2016 season with thoracic outlet syndrome, but should be good to go for 2017. While Zimmer would not be a part of the Opening Day roster, being a big part of the Triple-A Omaha team in the first half is a reasonable goal. He had surgery in August after undergoing elbow and shoulder surgery (2012 and 2014) and being shut down with a strained latissimus dorsi muscle in his back in 2015.

Fantasy Impact

A first-round pick in the 2012 draft, Zimmer has surpassed 70 innings pitched just once, throwing a career-high 108 1/3 innings in 2013. The tragic loss of Yordano Ventura has left a huge hole at the top of the Royals' rotation and a good beginning of the 2017 minor league season could land Zimmer in the MLB rotation. He has a 3.24 ERA in 222 1/3 career minor league innings, striking out 10.9 batters per nine innings.

Kyle Zimmer to have season-ending surgery

Royals number two prospect Kyle Zimmer to undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. This will end his 2016 season.

Fantasy Impact

One of the Royals top prospects and most likely a September call up had to call his season quits on Tuesday. Zimmer decided to undergo season-ending surgery and dynasty owners are crushed. Many owners expected Zimmer to be on their playoff roster but unfortunately will have to wait until next season. Good luck with the recovery Kyle.

Kyle Zimmer dealing with arm fatigue

Kyle Zimmer will remain in extended Spring Training as he's dealing with arm fatigue. It's not clear when he'll join the rotation for the Royals' Triple-A affiliate.

Fantasy Impact

Zimmer was optioned to Triple-A during Spring Training. The former top prospect could make his Major League debut at some point this season.

Kyle Zimmer optioned to Triple-A

Kyle Zimmer was optioned to Triple-A after a solid spring.

Fantasy Impact

Royals are giving their prized prospect more time to hone his skill. Zimmer is going to be a very good pitcher for a very long time. Kyle is worth the wait if you are in a dynasty league but for re-drafts, leave him on the waiver until he gets a call up later on in the year.
